Singer, Kcee, has revealed the reason behind his legal action against former Five Star Music artiste, Harrysong. He said that he was compelled to take legal action against Harrysong and his former manager, Soso Soberekon after receiving threats to his life.
It will be recalled that a few days ago, Harrysong shared on Instagram a court injunction he received from Kcee. Following the injunction, Harrysong said that Kcee was jealous of his success and was desperate to hold him down.
But Kcee has denied that he was being jealous. In a message by his manager, he explained that he only decided to take legal action because he did not want to resort to self help when his life was threatened.
His message read, “

‘That it is on record that certain personalities threatened the life of one of our recording and performing artiste in the person of Mr Kingsley Okonkwo (KCEE) and have also gone ahead to threaten to distort the reputable image of KCEE in the eyes of the right thinking members of the society and more especially his esteemed fans and business associates
‘In order to protect the life, image, integrity and reputation of our artiste, he approached the court of law to seek for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights which he is entitled to as a Nigerian citizen.
